I am looking for a scripting process to place Abobe Premiere 2020 on iMacs

I am needing to upgrade 90+ iMacs to Adobe Premiere 2020 from Premiere 2019. I am wanting to push it out through KACE to place on the desktop of my admin login so I don't have to carry around flash drives. Is there a script that can be created or has someone created one that I can run after hours to push out to the iMacs?

I am new to this part of scripting as I was always on the front end but now am on the back end of the process. I am trying to teach myself scripting but can use all the help I can get. 

Thanks for your time and help.

I prefer managed installs whenever possible.

  1. Login to the Adobe Administrator console and create your Premiere package
  2. Download the Adobe download tool to get the actual installer
  3. Open the zip file and find the install package
  4. Create a dmg containing the package
  5. In Terminal use this command:
    hdiutil create -srcfolder /path/to/installer.pkg nameofdmg.dmg
  6. Upload the dmg to the SMA (for larger packages I normally use the clientdrop share)
  7. Install the package from step 3 on a test machine
  8. Force an inventory on the test machine
  9. Find Adobe Premiere in the test machine's software inventory
  10. Attach the dmg uploaded in step 6 to the software title
  11. Create a new managed install for Adobe Premiere
  12. Leave the install parameters as the default
    The SMA will download the dmg file and mount it then run the package for you
  13. Test the managed install on a second test machine
  14. Deploy to the rest of the machines
  15. Profit
